Dancin' in Atlanta

My sister talked me into riding with her to Atlanta Georgia for her dance competition coming up in a couple weeks, and i knew i was going to be in for a long weekend. We decided to drive her car and just hit the road and not rest until we arrive. Channing assured me that i am just along for the ride and she would not drag me into the clubs with her but i was not counting on it. I should have known better than to believe her.

So we leave on a Saturday morning and head straight for our hotel. We got to the Georgia line and noticed that the air was very hot in the air conditioner so we decided to pull over in Valdosta GA. Upon inspection, we came to the conclusion that the compressor had went out on my sisters car and we are only 4 hours from home and at this point it is high noon and the heat is in the 90's. After wasting 2 hours with no fix for the car, I was ready to call my mom and have her come get us. Luckily my sister found a website and we were able to reserve a car last minute and pick it up about 6 miles down the road. It was a nice size standard car so we had plenty of room for her 3 suitcases and various make up and costume bags and for only 139.99 for the week, I was ecstatic.

Once we are back on the road it was a very uneventful but comfortable ride. We stopped a couple times for stretch or bathroom breaks. When we arrived at the hotel we got checked in and set up for the next morning and after exploring the downtown nightlife with the rest of the dancers, which was very eventful. Watching Channing try to get up and ready was the best part in the morning and saying I told you so. After a not-so well rested night it was time for the big dance competition. I was one of the crazies seen running around back stage with tu-tu's, hair spray and tights chasing dancers around with dangerous amounts of glitter and false lashes. It was quite an eventful day and in the end, it turned out to be a good trip. Now we just have to make it home and she was very tired from her long day of dancing and so I decided to test out the rental car with my NASCAR driver tendencies. The car was very clean and did not look very used, I was very happy with my rental car. Not only was it a nice and clean, well ran car but it was so economical. It turned my vacation around completely.
